'F*ck Kavanaugh Lipstick' Supports Organizations Fighting Sexual Assault

"100 percent towards charity, 100 percent against assault."

Dr. Christine Blasey Ford's accusations against Brett Kavanaugh have spurred many to stand up against sexual assault, share their personal stories, and explain why survivors don't always speak up right away. Students at Kavanaugh's alma matter, Yale University, wrote a letter of protest. Many are standing in support of Ford and other accusers of Kavanaugh, and 1,600 men signed an ad in the New York Times supporting Ford. 

Beauty brand Lipslut is also taking action by launching a F*ck Kavanaugh Lipstick.

During the lipstick's launch week, 100 percent of the profits will be donated to anti-sexual assault organizations.

The shade was chosen in an Instagram vote and is described as a "cool, calm, and collected deep red."

Lipslut explains on its website the "F*ck Kavanaugh" liquid lipstick is "100 percent towards charity, 100 percent against assault." When someone purchases a lipstick, they can vote on which charity will receive the donations. Of course, there are several organizations fighting sexual assault that patrons can choose from.  

Katie Sons, the founder of Lipslut, told Refinery29 about the inspiration behind the launch. "I got so upset seeing women's voices being ignored, doubted and flat-out denied."

"If the highest levels of government won’t listen to us, who will? To me, this entire mess serves as a microcosm for how thousands of women’s experiences and traumas are treated every day — we had to act.”

Lipslut explains on its website that the brand was "birthed in the aftermath of the 2016 presidential election" by "jaded romantics" who are a "middle finger to the current sociopolitical landscape and practices found in the cosmetics industry." They're about taking action and improving society.

In a similar vein to the "F*ck Kavanaugh" Lipstick, the company has previously released a "F*ck Trump" Lipstick to benefit organizations helping to reunite separating migrant families.

Both products show that even something as small as a lipstick can make a difference.
